"I could imagine that the american military might be thinking about hitting some communication nodes just again to show the syrian government that they can do it and they can inflict really painful harm if oxide does not stop using chemical weapons is there an end to any of this beyond persuading outside to desist from using chemical weapons on not wishing to to trivialize that as an objective but is is there a wide strategy here or is this just a short term reaction to what we've seen happen in the last week or so well listeners are wondering what is the american strategy for syria i think many of us over here on this side of the ocean or also wondering same same thing we know that donald trump doesn't wanna get deeply involved in the syrian civil war we know that donald trump doesn't wanna pay for reconstruction of destroyed syrian cities and towns we know the donald trump really wants to just get out of syria get american forces out of syria once the remnants of isis this state of iraq concere once was remnants are destroyed i don't think that trump is going to try to change the military balance in the syrian civil war that military balance now obviously favors but charlotte side even if there is still substantial parts of the country outside assads control i i'm thinking that the americans probably are going to do a more limited round of strikes more than say a year ago none but not seeking to topple offside and i'm not even sure they're going to hit iranian targets in syria as some of the more conservative elements in the american national security establishment over here are suggesting isn't this kind of weed rationale then.
